List Rules Vote up your favorite characters from films directed by David O. Russell.

Join us as we rank David O. Russell’s greatest movie characters. Russell made his feature debut with 1994's dark comedy Spanking the Monkey. Since then, he’s established himself as one of the quirkiest filmmakers around. Silver Linings Playbook, The Fighter, and American Hustle were all nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. Jennifer Lawrence and Christian Bale both won Oscars under his direction.

The best David O. Russell characters tend to be eccentric and flawed in fascinating ways. He’s not interested in people who are mundane. Instead, his films always center on unique, memorable characters who are dealing with extraordinary - and sometimes extraordinarily weird - situations. Albert Markovski and Tommy Corn in I Heart Huckabees were both looking for existential guidance, while Pat Solitano in Silver Linings Playbook was struggling to come to terms with his new life.
